Sub Zero nightclub opened in 2006, following a £1.2 million refurbishment of The Underground. The venue has a capacity of 1200 and regularly hosts some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry.
In the summer of 2019 we invested over £100,000 in a state of the art KV2 Sound system, new lighting rig and installed CO2 cannons, adding to the already fantastic experience of clubbing on campus.

As an SU we believe that everyone should be entitled to a safe night out on campus.
To achieve this, we provide the following:
In order to keep you safe on a night out, we carry out a number of random searches to make sure no one is bringing anything into sub zero that they shouldn’t be. To be as transparent as possible, we keep a record of the searches conducted, and you can see a breakdown of the last 4 years HERE
To help make sure everyone in Sub Zero has a great night and in line with our SU values we operate a strict zero tolerance approach to any form of:
It is on all of us to behave. If not, the party’s over for you and we may take further action. If you witness any unacceptable behaviour or ever feel unsafe please speak to any of our security team.
For those walking to and from campus, the University has set up a ‘Walking Together’ email subscription, where you can make contact with other University members walking on your route. Membership of the subscription list is instant just follow these steps:
Free personal alarms are available, and can be collected from the Information Centre on Square 3. The Suzy Lamplugh Trust provides information on the purpose and use of personal alarms. Most local taxis pick up from outside Sub Zero too, if you’d prefer to get a taxi home.
Along with believing everyone should have a safe night out, we think you should have a great night out. While we can't help if you fall out with your best mate, we can look into examples of bad service or where you feel you have been treated unfairly by our staff or our third party agencies (eg. St Johns and security team).
You can let us know about your issue in one of two ways:
Our venue has multiple methods of entry including a lift and access ramp onto the main floor of the venue. If you require any assistance please just ask one of our helpful staff.
Within the venue there is a accessible toilet which is located on the main floor level next to the cloakroom and our main bar has a lowered section.
From SQ3 enter at the main SU Entrance and take the Lift to floor 2. To travel from SQ4 enter at 4SW and take a left turn past the SU offices to get to the lift.
